Bangkok - Thai police say the fingerprints of a foreign man arrested at Thailand's border with Cambodia match those they found on a bottle containing bomb-making material.

The bottle was among many items seized during a raid on Saturday of an apartment on the outskirts of Bangkok where another suspect was arrested as part of the investigation into the deadly August 17 bombing at the Erawan shrine.

Both suspects are being interrogated by the military and have not yet been charged.
